Travelling to and from MLC
Our campus is located in the heart of the vibrant Perth suburb of Claremont. Bordered by Christ Church Grammar School and the Swan River, we are on the corner of Stirling Highway and Corry Lynn Road.
There are a numerous options to explore when planning your journey to MLC. We encourage our MLC girls to walk, cycle or take public transport, where appropriate.
When visiting MLC for the first time, it is helpful to note traffic on Stirling Highway can be congested during peak traffic times. Depending on the time of day of your visit, limited parking is available in the Meredith Taylor Health and Sports Centre car park and in the Hadley Hall carpark on campus. View map of MLC here. Limited time free parking is available at Claremont Quarter, should you prefer to avoid congestion during peak times and enjoy the five-minute walk to campus.
There are two major entry points to the College for parents dropping off their children.
Parents of all students are encouraged to enter the College from Stirling Highway to drop their children in the carpark adjacent to Hadley Hall. There is also a larger car park in front of the Meredith Taylor Health and Sports Centre which can be utilised.
The second access point is via Corry Lynn Road which is available as a drop off or pick up point for students from the Early Learning Centre–Year 12. It is likely that students finishing classes at 3.30pm will not arrive at Corry Lynn Road for pickup until around 3.40pm. It is illegal to park along the street and verges during peak times on Corry Lynn Road and the surrounding streets, except in marked bays.
There is limited parking available in all areas of the College so car-pooling is encouraged whenever possible.
A MLC customised version of the Perth Transit Authority's Student SmartRider is issued to each student.
These are also used as a College Library card and a My Student Account card, as well as a student concession card.
Four MLC/Christ Church Grammar School Community Buses will pick up and drop off students from the Floreat, Nedlands, Shenton Park, Subiaco and Karrinyup areas as well as the southern suburbs. Students are required to be at the stops at least five minutes prior to the departure. Please note that all times may vary due to traffic conditions on the day.
The Floreat shuttle is a Buswest bus with a MLC/Christ Church Grammar School sign in the window. This bus will drop students directly outside MLC, on the College side of the road. After school, the bus will pick students up from Stirling Highway, opposite MLC, at 3.45pm. Students will be required to walk across the overpass to reach the bus stop.

Southern Suburbs Bus
MLC and Christ Church Grammar School also provide a bus service for our students living in the southern suburbs.
Bus Tickets - Tag On/Tag off System

MLC has introduced a tag on/tag off system for all school bus services with Christ Church Grammar School. To utilise the system, students must use their My Student Account (MSA)/Smartrider. Community bus usage charges are added to MLC tuition fee invoices. Fares for the northern suburbs community bus are $1 per one way journey and fares for the southern suburbs bus are $2.50 per one way journey.
Trains run regularly throughout the day to Claremont station which is on the Fremantle line. Our girls walk from the station to the campus in about 10 minutes.
Girls travelling on the Midland, Joondalup, Armadale or Mandurah lines can connect with this service at the Perth city station.
Transperth is the government provider of bus services in the metropolitan area. It provides special school bus services throughout the WA Education Department school terms to and from our campus. These terms may differ slightly from the MLC school term.
As we are conveniently located on Stirling Highway, numerous public bus services also stop outside of the campus.
Special buses link with some train services, running between Claremont Railway Station and the College on school days. The 107 bus departs from Stop ID 11160 at the Claremont Station and comes past MLC.
